Men who died after boat sank.

The bodies of two men who died when their boat sunk last weekend have been pulled from the sea off Shoreham.

 
The pair were discovered by a fisherman around two and a half miles off the coast this morning.
 
The men were on a fishing boat with two other friends when it collided with a scallop trawler last weekend.
 
The pair have been identified as two Romanian men living in Brighton.

They are Mircea Ilie, 40, of Elm Grove and Irinel Popovici, 41, of Barcombe Road.
 
The body of another man was found during a big rescue operation last Sunday.
 
A fourth man is recovering in hospital after being found clinging onto a buoy.
